The Copyright (EC Measures Relating to Pirated Goods and Abolition of Restrictions on the Import of Goods) Regulations 1995

These Regulations under section 2(2) of the European Communities Act 1972 give effect in the United Kingdom to the Community obligation to establish within the Community the internal market as an area without internal frontiers in accordance with Articles 8(a) and 30 of the EC Treaty taking into account Article 9(1) of the European Economic Area Agreement. The effect of those articles is that goods arriving in the United Kingdom which originate in any of the EEA States or goods which have been released into free circulation in the European Community cannot be treated as prohibited goods under section 111. The Regulations modify section 111 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 which entitles a copyright owner to give notice to the Commissioners of Customs and Excise of infringing printed copies of literary, dramatic or musical works or infringing copies of sound recordings or films which he wishes to be treated as prohibited. It restricts such requests to goods which arrive in the United Kingdom from outside the European Economic Area or from within that Area but which have not been entered for free circulation.
